Wheel Warranty & Coverage



 

Quality Tire honors all manufactures warranties for aftermarket wheels. This section will help the end user to determine examples of what is covered and what is not covered under a wheel warranty. This section will also provide wheel maintenance procedures to help keep your wheels to their original state.

 

Proper care and maintenance:

 

  • All chrome plated wheels should be cleaned with mild soap and water frequently.  Wheels must be cool before anything is put on the wheel.

  • When possible, chrome plated wheels should not be used in areas where salt and chemicals are used in winter weather.

  • If chrome wheels are driven in the winter months they should be cleaned every week.

  • Chrome pitting is not covered by any wheel manufacture. chrome pitting is not the same as chrome separation.

  • Most manufacture's warranties only cover the face of the wheel, and not pitting or peeling on the backside of the wheel. Proper attention should be paid to the backside of chrome plated wheels when washing.

If proper maintenance procedures are not followed, chrome wheels are susceptible to pitting.

Salt and Brake Dust build up:

 

If you live in areas where there are extreme climate conditions, please be aware that additional care needs to be taken to keep the finish from being damaged. Additionally in any climatic area, care must be taken to periodically remove any brake dust from the inner barrel and windows of the chrome wheels.
 
Example: areas that use salt on the roads. If the salt comes in contact with the wheel the finish can be damaged. It is advised to install different wheels during these conditions.
Example: in coastal areas extra care needs to be taken to keep the wheels clean as the salt air and an accumulation of brake dust can damage the finish of the wheel.

 

EXAMPLES OF WHEELS NOT COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY:

 

wheel chrome peeling   wheel pits and corrosion

 

wheel suface pitting   example of a wheel not under warranty

 

Example of pitting from climatic conditions (road salts) on the inside window, and inner barrel. Salts that are not promptly cleaned from the wheel corrode the chrome finish and the soft aluminum casting beneath. This type of damage is not covered under this warranty.
